Robert Putnam suggests that every 10 minutes of commuting reduces the social life by 10 percent.

What affect does this have on our churches?
What challenges does this present for faith communities?
How will the rise in gas prices ($4 by next summer) continue to drive the statistics?

Is the "missional life" the greatest answer to this dilemma? (Read yesterday's post on missional church)

Commuting a long distance can make going anywhere a problem. There are so many annoyances-traffic, the price of gas, etc. I travel over 20 miles to get to where my church family meets because I want to not because it is the easiest option. It is a challenge but not a burden.
